So how do I upload photos of my plants to ATP? In their plants database? Like if I search hibiscus, there are multiple photos of the same plant posted by different people. How do I post my pic in there?

Also, I noticed some people's profiles have pics of plants that they have/grow, or grown. How do I do that?

You can upload a photo to your profile here: https://garden.org/users/prefs.... Near the bottom of the page there should be a section marked "Avatar Photo".

Regarding adding your photos to the database, first find the entry for the plant you wish to add a photo for. There should be a box on the left with "Adding Actions" at the top. Click "Upload a photo" and follow the prompts.

You can also associate a photo that has already been uploaded into a post by clicking on the photo (to show the full view), then clicking on the little database icon (the circular platters) below the photo. This will take you to a search page where you can search for and select the appropriate entry.

And if you are talking about the little microbadges under a persons name in the upper right of a post, like mine her and Joshua's, click on your profile (either by clicking the blue person icon upper right or clicking on your user name in your post here) and under 'Your Actions', click on the 'manage your microbades'. They are 'purchased' with accumulated acorns. What are acorns? Click on the 'Acorns' bottom left of any page.

Also, you can create your own list of the plants you grow, click my profile to see how I have done mine. You add a plant to your list by first finding the plant in the database, then click the blue "Add the plant to your list' button.
All your actions and functions are found on your profile.

Ohhhh oK.

Thank you so much. I will try that in a minute. I looked and looked in my profile page but couldn't find anything. I will try again and follow your directions.

You won't find a plant list on your page until you add your first one from the database.
